Album Review: Dave Edmunds - Rags And Classics (7/10)

51eJ7ptI8RL._SL500_AA280_Known for his impeccable taste and skill, veteran rocker Dave Edmunds interprets 
some of his favorite tunes through a purely 
instrumental approach, and like Jeff Beck 
he can make his guitar sing and cry without 
the aid of pesky vocals. A few tunes fall prey 
to the home studio trap of artificial drum 
and cliched keyboard sounds (no loop/program sequencing, though), but his guitar sounds great throughout. Superb song choices here (Moody Blues, Beach Boys, Booker T and more), and his take on Kate Bush’s “Wuthering Heights” is truly inspired. – David Arnson
